Greetings,

I thought some of y’all might be interested in seeing the view from the top of our STL (Studio to Transmitter Link) tower. These were taken earlier today by our very friendly tower inspector at a height of 40ft above the building roofline.

One is of campus/downtown…

STL - Campus and Downtown

…this one is the view from our rooftop , up North Lamar Blvd…

STL - North Lamar

…and this one is the line-of-sight path our audio takes from the studio to the tower site.

STL Path to tower

Our tower is the second tall one from the right, and our main antenna is the big reddish stick on the top-right (it makes our tower look sorta lopsided).

Enjoy,

Phil

    By the way, they call that tower “The Finger.”

    I guess I never thought about the transmitter, and it even has a name!

    Those are really nice photos. I like the one up Lamar Blvd. It helps me to remember Austin as it was back in the late 60′s when I first moved here. All the picts are nice though.
